It was difficult to find the "leaked" video; but it looks legit.

Saw the video... Didn't matter what he bet. He was losing anyway.

Pretty smart move actually. He knew that if the girl leading got it right, he was done so he bet exactly enough to beat the third place guy, which would have been the difference had the girl been wrong.

I've been watching it, just because of him. He beat two lawyers on Fri. One was a super liberal that is working as the attorney for one of the terrorist at Guantanamo Bay. Happy he beat his ass.

He actually lost on March 12. He lost before the first episode of him winning was broadcast. It's surprising they were able to keep it quiet as long as they did.

Yep, too bad his run ended, he was only ~$60K from betting Ken Jennings dollar total, itís like he was not meant to break the record

He still won 2.4 million bucks. I'm not feeling too sorry for him.
